report says that the argument that mitt romney was making about the economy and president obama has to be at least some point attenuated, meaning that bottom line, with unemployment going below 8% for the first time since the start of the administration in '09, the obama administration can make the case that some of their policies have produced some results. given the debate results on tuesday night, this is a potential life saver, if not a game changer for president obama. >> jamie: i suppose it has to continue and. >> yeah. >> jamie: let me ask you, angela, what's the important number, that it's below 8 or that 23 million people are out of work? >> exactly. 23 million people are still out of work, and you have 47 million people still on food stamps, so, i think the beltway and journalists care about the numbers, but if you don't have a job, if you can't pay your bills and gas prices are still high like they are here in california that's what you're going going to vote on and the obama administration failed. >> jamie: doug and angela, have a great saturday and always good to talk to y

numbers in the latest job report and showing a dip in the unemployment. former chairman jack welch is skeptical. meaning that employers added a modest 114,000 jobs and the drop comes at a critical time for the president who is coming off a weak debate performance with romney. joining us is new york times best selling author out with the latest book. ann coulter. at this point in time the president said we will be at 5.6 and enjoying that part of the economy and a more comfortable position and now they are running with this new number. what is your response. >> it is noticeable that a lot of economist are saying this is not possible. you would need more than 114,000 jobbings. i don't think it matters except to broadcasting tv shows or writing for newspaper what number they throw up on the screen. people know they are out of work and in jobs and they are way overqualified for and working part-time. so many people are going out of business and under working now. 23 million unemployed difference does it make? >> the numbers simply write away the 211,000,000 people stopping to look for peo

straight months. and 44-month low in the unemployment rate. you know what is really shocking is that you have republicans, colleagues of mine, mitt romney, reince priebus, disappointed to continue the football analogy. they were rooting for a fumble and it's unbelievable that they are disappointed that we have a 44-month low in the unemployment rate. the american enterprise institute said that anyone talks about cooking the books is living in crazy town. so i guess chairman priebeus and other republicans either are dwelling there or simply rooting for failure. we need to continue to move our economy forward. >> shannon: the same grandpa, aei, said that under the president's plan, taxes would go up by $4,000 are they right? >> the tax policy center, which made up of economists from the bush administration and as well as the clinton administration, their asis says when it comes to mitt romney's and paul ryan's budget plan, it would cost $2,000 to pay for tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires, it turns medicare into a voucher system. that's one thing that mitt romney was honest a
